Niagara Falls Day Two

Annual Blogosphere Trip
Day Two
2014 Niagara Falls
Hosted by Gracie, Raz, & Sammy

Day two at the falls is soon to begin. The girls decided that there is so much to do at and around the falls we would spend our second day there too. We will catch up with the boys and see what they are up to.
OMC! What a view. Unless you are in the falls I don't think you can get any closer than you are if you are in this spot on the observation deck. It was very loud and wet.

After we left the observation deck we took the tour and went under the falls. Yes! Under the falls. You could almost not hear yourself talk because of the roar of the water going over the falls.


In the afternoon I took some time out just to enjoy the beauty of the falls. It would soon be time to leave and I wanted every moment I could get being by the falls.

Raz & Gracie by the falls

Raz and I were wondering what the others were doing. I asked Raz if he had seen Sammy lately but he had not. Soon we caught a glimpse of something going over the falls, it looked like a barrel. Who would be in a barrel going over the falls?
Oh nooooooooooooo it's Sammy. Eeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkk
Splash down and good news is it looks like Sammy is alright. Lucky Allie and Anya were on the Maid of the Mist ride and saw him land in the water. The captain of the boat headed over to him and pulled him to safety.
We all headed back to the hotel to make sure Sammy was OK and to help dry him off. We all packed and will soon head down for the bus ride back home. Anya and I look one last moment of the view of the falls from our room.
Sammy was not hurt in anyway from his ride over the falls and was ready to drive us all back to the states.

Hope you all had a fun time at Niagara Falls.

Annual Blogosphere Trip

One of my most favorite days of the year is the annual Blogosphere Trip. This year Raz and Sammy are helping to host this fun event and we are heading to Niagara Falls. Sammy picked us up this morning and we made a stop at a really neat store to pick out some barrels to take with us.



Sammy has agreed to drive us all there in his tour bus. Here is a photo of our wonderful bus driver taking us over the Ambassador Bridge by Detroit, Michigan. You can see we are about to enter Canada.
After stopping at customs before we could enter Canada to show the border patrol workers out passports we then headed towards the falls. The closer we got the more excited we all became. While driving us to the hotel Sammy drove down Falls Avenue. He pointed out the falls straight ahead of us. This was the first time for me to ever see Niagara Falls!

We checked in at the hotel and dropped off our suitcases and immediately we all went down to the falls to check things out.

The falls were beautiful! It just took my breath away. It was everything I imagined it would be and more. We did notice a sign . . . hum . . . maybe we should not have brought our barrels with us.

We all agreed that the first thing we wanted to do was take a ride on the Maid of the Mist. Before we put on our rain gear we took a group photo on the front of the boat.

The view from the boat was beautiful though very wet as we got closer to the falls.

After the Maids of the Mist ride we headed back to our room so we could dry off and get something to eat. We will make plans on what we want to do tomorrow.

Hope you are having a fun time here at Niagara Falls.

From Sammy
Thank you Sammy

Sorry for yelling but mom really, really, really you forgot! Anyway, I started blogging back in 2009 and have met many dear friends. Everyone that I have met has touched my life in a special way. Though I have not been visiting very much lately, it's the mom don't ask, I still think of you. Mom has been trying to let me visit a little more. Some of my friends ran off to the bridge and my heart still and always will hold a place for them. I have been on many adventures in the Blogosphere and actually the fourth Blogosphere trip is being planned right now, Sammy and Raz will be helping me to host this. Details will be sent out soon so be on the lookout.

The second Sunday in September is National Pet Memorial Day.
Honoring those pets who ran off to the Bridge.

Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still Loved, and still missed
